BCCI to ask ICC to remove N. Srinivasan as its chairman

Mumbai: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has decided at its 85th annual general meeting being held here today, to recommend to the International Cricket Council (ICC) that it remove N. Srinivasan from the post of chairman with immediate effect.

According to informed sources, the BCCI has said it will recommend its incumbent president Shashank Manohar as a suitable replacement for Srinivasan till June 2016.

Srinivasan, who is still the president of the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association, was made the chairman of the ICC in June 2014.

He has been under scrutiny in the wake of the Justice Lodha-led committee stating that there was a conflict of interest in him being both the BCCI president and the owner of the IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings. He was also placed under the investigative scanner in the wake of his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan being involved in spot fixing during the 2013 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).(ANI)
